Pendant set with pavé diamonds, in white gold.
The pansy is an iconic flower of the Maison Boucheron since 1875. It is the combined strength and sophistication of this flower that triumphs over its apparent fragility and appeals to women.
The gold open-work technique of the pendant Pensée de Diamants creates a captivating play of light.
Appearing 102 times in the Maison’s special order books between 1876 and 1902, Marie-Louise Mackay, a wealthy American, made the most impressive orders ever known by the Maison Boucheron. She first arrived at Boucheron with no specific creation in mind, simply asking the jeweler for an extraordinary stone. To express his love, her husband asked Frédéric Boucheron to secretly seek out the most exceptional sapphire to match the intense color of her deep blue eyes. He finally selected a 159 carat blue sapphire from Kashmir that he had set onto a necklace, which delighted Mrs Mackay, who was then said to own the world’s most beautiful sapphire. Frédéric Boucheron had already understood that the beauty of a precious stone or jewel is above all a means to highlight and enhance a woman’s radiance.Discover all of the Boucheron moments
